The PBS live-performance TV show Austin City Limits is about to kick off its 40th season, incredibly enough. And the performer featured in the season premiere is a good one: Beck: Who returned from a long absence earlier this year with the lovely new album Morning Phase. That album is very much in the ACL wheelhouse; it’s soft and considered but also sharp and personal. And Beck is a compelling performer even when he’s at his most sedate. We’ve already posted the clip of him doing “Loser” on the episode. Below, watch him sing the Morning Phase single “Blue Moon” on his ACL episode.
The season premiere of Austin City Limits airs Saturday night at 10 eastern on PBS.
